2007 Sainsbury LBV

Post by AHB » 21:38 Sun 12 May 2013

Symington Family Estates. Deep red in colour, 80% opaque. Little on the nose. Restrained fruit and a lack of balance on the initial palate, awkwardly acidic. Generous fruit and assertive tannins on the palate. There is a big finish with a long and persistent aftertaste. 84/100. Drunk 24 April 2013 at the 2007 LBV post BFT offline.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
